Apparently, putting good books in the hands of children is a bad thing. Assault weapons? Not so much, according to the American government.
But the good folks over at Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, a “non-partisan grassroots movement to mobilize moms and families to advocate for stronger gun laws,” disagree. As well they should.
A few years ago, they launched a campaign featuring three ads, each with an image of two children in a school setting. One is holding a (mostly) harmless item; the other is carrying a big, black, menacing assault weapon. All three are very strong images that communicate an important message, but I’m sure it’s fairly obvious why I was drawn to this particular image. God, I love smart advertisements!
